    I think it’s gonna be a good game.  SA is really young and starting a sophomore QB.  Probably up to 14 players that are fr and So.  I don’t think the receivers would catch the ball if you had put tar on their gloves last week.  Looking forward to seeing my buddys from alto this week!

    Yes sir, @TheWolf! Come over and say HI. We’ll be down at the tunnel before the game.

    I think it will be a battle. Young or not SA will have the athletes and they’ll play hard. I believe we are settling in and playing to our strengths. Line play is really coming along while our passing game is still a work in progress. Our QB Friday night got his first varsity start and is also a sophomore. He got the job done and will get more confident each week. I like our chances Friday, but always much respect for the San Augustine program. I know they’ll be ready to go.

  2. The Alto Yellowjackets will host the San Augustine Wolves this week. The Mean Sting got their first win of the season 42-7 against the Winona Wildcats on Friday. San Augustine fell 62-7 to a talented West Rusk squad. The Jackets have only played one other game (a first week loss to undefeated Troup) and then had a couple weeks off because of Covid. The Wolves started the season with a win over West Sabine but have dropped the next games to Beaumont Kelly, Elkhart and then West Rusk. Both squads have new coaches this season. The Wolves are a young group and the Jackets are feeling confident after putting together a good win at home.  San Augustine won last year’s contest 48-20. Alto leads the series 19-10.

    Who gets their second win of the season?

    Sounds about right... what a damn shame, but I'll continue to support these coaches and kids!!!! Keep working Katz

    Man, Winona had some big kids. And a couple of their backs (21 and 23) were dang hard to bring down! Lots of penalties (fixable) but hopefully they’ll clean it up and make a run in district. All the best to y’all moving forward.

    The past 2 weeks nothing has seem to be clicking, hopefully we pull it together tonight and spoil that homecoming....

    I have a meeting in Longview this afternoon and won't be thru til around 6:30 or so, so I figured might as well catch Longview game since I'll be in town... hate it but is what it is

    That should be a great game!  I read where Bryant, AR hasn't lost a game since 2018??  Should be a battle with Longview!

    Thanks man. I mean, that’s what it’s always been here. It’s a culture state. Something that has to be maintained, protected, and preached to be kept alive. And as you stated in your earlier post, yes, things won’t and don’t always go your way, but you better play hard as he 🏒🏒 for 4 quarters. That’s an expectation of the community both young and old alike. 

    Well said!  I always liked Southlake Carroll's motto "Protect the Tradition."  It's true.  Maintain, PROTECT, preach it........and work like HECK to keep it going.  I'm ready for tonight.

    Well Friday is here again. Have been in a bit of a funk and haven’t had it in me to post much after the cancellations the last two weeks. Just something about it being a Friday night in Alto with nowhere to be lol..It puts you in a weird place. With that said, I’ve braced myself long enough for another let down and I think we’re safe now. So here’s my take. It’s gonna be a challenge tonight to play a clean game just because of the extended down time. Im expecting some uncharacteristic things to happen tonight just because of that. BUT, I am certain it won’t take our boys long to get back in the groove. I know they’re chomping to get after it, especially after having to taste the loss to Troup for two weeks. Great thing about tonight is that it’s the HOME OPENER and HOMECOMING and the atmosphere will be lit for their return. They’ll certainly be out to prove themselves in front of those that came before them and those waiting in the wings. 

    I really like the way you put that. So so true. And that’s what it’s all about. Former Jackets seeing what the current crew can bring and future Jackets dreaming of the day they get to play out there for the black and gold. Friday night lights at its best….and homecoming no less!

    our jv moved to 4-0 that group is good and we're down there biggest play maker tonight...  good luck rest of the way alto

    Pretty good games

    Hey Jett! They were good games. Props to Winona! They have some good teams. I was impressed by our middle school kids. Good numbers, size up front, and speedy backs. I was encouraged. JV battled. We probably owned the time of possession, but a turnover and not being able to sustain some drives killed us. That was actually our JV’s first game to play so I thought they fought hard and I saw some positives. We’ll get after it next week vs. San Augustine and hopefully more improvement. 

    All the best to Winona going forward!
